John Leos has made “transparency” a cornerstone of his campaign: he’s all about ensuring nothing is hidden from the voters.
Except when it comes to telling voters about his stands on the issues.
Click here to go to John Leos’ campaign website. Scroll down and in the lower right-hand corner you’ll see a photo of him with Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait:
Now, here’s the same photo in a John Leos campaign mailer that went out a few days ago, targeting Republican voters:
But wait! Are they the same picture? Let’s make a side-by-side comparison:
Well, what do you know? The Leos campaign altered the photo: Photoshopping out the “No on 32″ signs on the back wall.
Why would the Leos campaign do that?
Leos, a government union activists and (until recently) a director of the OCEA. opposes Prop. 32, which would require unions like his to get members’ permission before using their dues for political purposes. Prop. 32 has strong support among Anaheim Republican voters, and letting them know Leos’ stance on this issue would undercut efforts to sell him as a conservative reformer.
So Leos airbrushes his”No on Prop. 32” stance out of existence. He’s so transparent on the issue of Prop. 32 that his position on it has disappeared!
Should we really be surprised? Leos is aligned with Tom Tait and Lucille Kring. But my neighbors and I not falling for it. We are supporting Brandman and Lodge and have already voted.
Wow – what a fraud! This man is so dangerous to Anaheim tax payers and clearly he is trying to hide his true motives by altering this picture to fool Anaheim voters.
What I cannot understand is why Mayor Tom Tait is dancing with the devil? Why would this mayor not only endorse Leos, the union activist (who surely has his eye on the kitty) but then also attend a “No on 32” union rally? Is he so desparate for relevance on this council that he will just bed anyone?
I find it ironic that these two fellows hold hands on street corners and sing “Let my people Vote” but then do not believe that hard working union members should be extended this same courtesy regarding how their union membership dues are spent.
